Re: E46 B3 saloon alpina blue and cream stripped interior

That looks nice. Little work needed to get it looking good.
The stripes are ace. I might consider these for mine.
The interior is very nice.

Re: E46 B3 3.3 Exhaust butterfly

At a meeting in London earlier this year i asked a mechanic to have a look at mine. One end of the vaccum pipe is connected to the side of the exhaust back box. Remove this and see what happens.

Re: Keys

I have four keys and some fit a couple of locks, so suspect that the keys would have been different at time of sale.

Re: D3 Touring Auction

Thanks Metrics - This looks very nice. I love the colour combo, but the car would benefit from some Alpina stripes :-).

I am guessing that the market value of this car is around £25k to £30k.

Re: Singapore - D5 Biturbo Edition 50!

Thanks Broch - Im back in the cold, dark and wet again now. Really depressing after a week in Singapoe (Lah!).

I did try and find the Alpina dealer, but they were very far from the centre of the city and when i looked on Google maps, it was in a industrial estate, so decided not to go.

Re: Eastenders last night?

As a ratio to the number of sikhs in the country to how many have Alpinas - the numbers are very strong.
There are at least (i have met) three sikhs on this very forum with Alpina car - some multiple alpina cars :) (Sandeep).....

Being a Sikh myself, i put it down to impecable taste!

Singapore - D5 Biturbo Edition 50!

Out in Singapore on business at the moment. I saw a green D5 BI Turbo Edition 50 making its way through the heavy monsoon rain and thunder storm near the Raffles Hotel.

Lovely. Really lovely.....

Re: B3 3.3 saloon #579 night blue

Looks nice Hap. What do you think is not right with it?

I like the light interior with dark exterior. The steering wheel is differnent and the radio needs a widescreen unit.

E46 B3 Steering wheel issue

All, I noticed that the leather on my steering wheel feels loose at the top edge. It seems that the leather and whatever is under it, has come away from the metal ring inside the wheel. The leather and stuffing twist around at the top most edge. Its not bad yet, but i want to fix it before it gets w...
